Eliza Scott with Spark Youth Dance Company performers Georgia, Pippa, Ella and Sadie.
Young Frankston artists and performers will showcase their talents at the Thrive Market and Variety Show on Friday. The show, supported by Frankston City Council’s Youth Services team, is the first event of the year to be organised and run as part of the Frankston FReeZA program and will be held in McClelland Sculpture Park+Gallery’s Pavilion Room from 5.30-8.30pm.
Event manager Eliza Scott said people could expect mesmerising performances by young musicians, dancers and acrobats, and an array of stalls featuring photography, paintings and other artworks. “The acrobats have a slow, controlled aesthetic rather than crazy tricks and flips; it looks absolutely stunning,” Ms Scott said.
Three musicians will be featured, with styles including folk acoustic, rock/musical theatre, and a vocalist Ms Scott described as “modern/dark”. Dancers from the Spark Youth Dance Company, whose works are designed and performed by artists under 25, will also take part, and the evening will include the screening of a short horror/comedy film called Harvest.
Tickets are $10 and will be reimbursed with vouchers on entry at the market stalls; under-12s are admitted free. A free shuttle bus will be operating from Frankston’s CBD. Click here for tickets, bus bookings and more details.
